Leeds United will clash heads with Brentford at the Gtech Community Stadium this Saturday as they look to secure a good result on the road. The Whites were held to a 1-1 draw by Everton in midweek, so they will be eager to return to winning ways in the Premier League.
Jesse Marsch could set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 formation and is expected to make at least one change for this game. Patrick Bamford will get the nod to lead the line for the Yorkshire club in the final third.
4-2-3-1 Leeds United Predicted Lineup To Face Brentford
Illan Meslier will feature in between the sticks for Leeds after shipping in one goal versus the Toffees in his last league outing. Diego Llorente will continue to play alongside Robin Koch in central defence as they look to keep the Brentford attackers at bay during the 90 minutes.
Rasmus Kristensen will probably keep his place at right-back while Pascal Struijk hopes to catch the eye as the left-back. Marsch would give both of them the license to get forward and join in on the attack at every chance they get.
Cody Drameh will have to settle for a place on the bench as he provides cover for the right-back position.
Marc Roca and Tyler Adams will anchor the midfield for the Whites as they try to make life difficult for the home side at the centre of the park.
The talented trio of Jack Harrison, Brenden Aaronson and Luis Sinisterra will function just ahead of them as part of Marsch’s attack. All three of them will be responsible for creating some decent chances for Patrick Bamford inside the opponent’s penalty box.
Daniel James, Mateusz Klich, Crysencio Summerville and Adam Forshaw will be available for selection on the bench as they wait for their opportunity to impress in the second half if needed.
Patrick Bamford will lead the charge for the Yorkshire giants on his own up top. He will have to find a way to be productive in front of the Brentford goal in the injury absence of Rodrigo who will be sidelined due to a shoulder problem.
Joe Gelhardt and Sam Greenwood will have to be content with a spot on the bench but might come on to make an impact in the final quarter of the game if Leeds are in need of a goal by then.
